TRENTON, NJ – Two Linden High School students were chosen to represent the Garden State in this year’s Annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House.

The U.S. Department of Education invited students nationally to design an egg reflective of their home state. Designs had to be emblematic, including elements such as the state flower or state bird.

Students from more than a dozen schools across New Jersey submitted their Easter egg designs to the state Department of Education for consideration, and the Linden High School’s design was unanimously selected.

“I’d like to congratulate Taylor Battle and Jade Rodriguez, the 12th-grade winning artists from Linden High School,” New Jersey’s Acting Education Commissioner Lamont O. Repollet said of the students who designed New Jersey’s submission.

"All of the submissions were thoughtful and creative, making for some tough competition in the selection process. We’re incredibly proud of the students and the schools that participated here in New Jersey," said Repollet.

The winning design was submitted for display at the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House.

The Easter Egg Roll tradition is one of the oldest annual White House programs, dating to the early 1800s when local children rolled eggs on the Capitol steps the day after Easter.
